|Mouse anti myosin antibody recognizes myosin regulatory light polypeptide 9 (MYL9), also known as MLC-2C.
The myosin superfamily contains actin-based molecular motors which facilitate muscle contraction among other motility processes, such as cytoplasmic contractility and mechanosensing. Myosin proteins use ATP hydrolysis to generate contractile force, powering movement (Heissler et al. 2016). Specific myosins are involved with specific functions. MYL9 is a regulatory subunit of myosin, which can be phosphorylated at threonine 18 and serine 19 to regulate activity. MYL9 also plays a unique role in the nucleus, transcriptionally activating intercellular adhesion molecule 1 (ICAM1) (Nevitt et al. 2018). Myosin functions as a tumor suppressor, with dysregulated activity in cancer. Loss of myosin has been shown to impact the metastatic potential of cells. However, targeting myosin may be difficult in cancer treatment due to its essential contractile functions (Surcel and Robinson 2019).
